When Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu requested a face-to-face visit with US President Barack Obama, the White House said the meeting would not be possible over the two leader’s conflicting schedules.
Critics pointed out Obama found time to appear on “The Late Show with David Letterman” at the same time he could have met with Netanyahu.
But it’s worse than that. Much worse.
On Monday, Obama managed to tape an appearance on ABC talk show “The View” with his wife, Michelle.
And here is how The View co-host Joy Behar reacted to the controversy:
Obama is being bashed for doing the View instead of meeting world leaders. Maybe he’d rather talk to me than Netanyahu. Ever think of that?

Yes we did.
The message is clear: Obama would rather appear on talk shows than have serious talks with the leader of America’s most important ally.
And I agree.
I’d much rather see Obama as a talk show host than as president of the United States.
